I have been dealing with parasites since Father's Day this year. In one tragic instant I was infested with both crabs and scabies, but didn't find out about the scabies until two weeks ago. I have spent so much time and money on this I really don't know what else to do. Because we were treating for lice, we would apply perm only to my genetals and leave on for 10 minutes and wash off. I did so many applications of permethrin that when I finally figured out that I had scabies too and left the perm on for the full 24 hours, it had very little effect. All it did was spread the bugs to parts of my body that weren't treated, namely my head and hair, which I then had to cut off. I have also been treated with ivermectin, but I have been dealing with doctors who are unskilled in this type of thing and are afraid of getting sued so they never prescribed a dose that was adequate for my weight (320 lbs).
I finally found a doctor who knew what she was doing and she asked me to try perm once more. This is the time that it sent them throughout my whole body, including my head. She then prescribed lindane, but quickly followed that up with ivermectin, at a dosage that was adequate for my weight, because I informed her that the bugs were migrating from my scalp to my nose and ears. The unfortunate thing with the ivermectin was because of my previous exposures to it at doses that were lower than adequate, the bugs had grown accustomed to it.
Today I went back to the doctors office where a medical assistant assisted me in applying the lindane to my body. Unfortunately, because of my weight and back troubles, there are certain parts of my body that I have difficulty reaching. She applied the lindane to all of my body except my anus. I was too embarrassed to ask her to apply it there. When I made it home an hour and a half later, I applied it to my anus, however, ended up having to go to defecate, so I reapplied it.
The sad thing is, however, that I was unable to keep the lindane on for the recommended 8-12 hours. I made it to about 7.5 hours for the rest of my body, but only about 5-6 hours for my anus. Before I finally got around to applying the lindane down there, I could feel the bugs migrating there because that was the only part of my body that was not treated. I had to wash off the lindane prematurely because if made me feel nasty. I felt dizzy, light headed, I even had to sit down several times because I was afraid that I was going to pass out. I just couldn't stand it any more.
After washing off the lindane and sitting down to recover, I could still feel creepy crawly sensations in my anus, the part of my body that got treated with the least amount of time. I'm concerned that the treatment has failed due to my inability to ask for what I need and I don't know what else to do. I can feel them, as I sit here, eating away at my ass, no pun intended.
The problem is that I have to move out of my house in less than two weeks. I will have to lave my work and be without insurance and income until I get another job. I am already at the end of my tether, I can't take any more of this. Is there any thing that I can do without insurance? Do any of these home remedies, like borax and food grade hydrogen peroxide, work? What else can I do? Is there anybody in the Baltimore area who might let me stay with them until I can get this worked out? If I stay here then I can keep my job. I'm desperate and don't know what to do next. Please help.

One thing for sure God knows how to take care of all this ask Him He will show you
Ps the betadine is to strong to use on large areas of the body always test any chemical you use on your forearm for 24 hours to determine if it is safe for applying
Praise be to God He is good , use this phrase in any emails you might write me so i will spot it

I've had scabies for 6 months and tried EVERYTHING mentioned on the forums, but nothing worked.
Finally, I did some research & developed my own mixture which WORKED LIKE A CHARM..NO MORE SCABIES!
I mixed curry powder, sea salt, baking soda & vaseline and applied it ALL over my body.
(the tumeric in the curry kills the scabies, the sea salt draws them OUT of your skin & the vaseline smothers them so they cannot breathe.)
It's safe around eyes, in your ears, in your nose.
You can even rub it on your privates!
Change into some OLD clothes (wash them later) and keep the mixture on for only 2 hours.(relax)
Shower thoroughly in HOT water & wash your curry covered clothes in HOT water.(and your towel)
I have not had ONE itch in days...Hallelujah!
